    Not sure what cox farms is supposed to do about a neighbor putting up a racist sign. Maybe Cox farms can put up a sign that says “Police Lives Matter” to troll back at them.

    displayed on private property visible from the farm

    The story says, “the building was a private residence of one of the farm’s owners”. That’s quite different from “private property visible from the farm” which could mean that it belonged to someone who had nothing to do with the farm, which is not the case.

    If they put the sign on their “private residence” that still tells me very plainly that they don’t want my business.
